Trump made a statement about Russia's invasion of Ukraine at a campaign event

Former U.S. President and current presidential candidate Donald Trump made an unexpected statement during his election campaign regarding the war in Ukraine. Thus, at a private event, Trump said that he would bomb Moscow in the event of a Russian attack on Ukraine if he were president.

This was reported by The Washington Post, citing sources. According to the newspaper, the politician's comments at campaign events often relate to foreign policy and topics he discusses at rallies, such as inflation and immigration.

At one such private event, Trump suggested that if he were president, he would bomb Moscow if Russia invaded Ukraine or Beijing if China invaded Taiwan.

The publication notes that such statements by Trump surprised some of his campaign donors.

Earlier, during his presidency, American politician Donald Trump criticized Ukraine for corruption and supported Russia's historical claims to part of its territory. At meetings with other leaders, he spoke of the Ukrainian state as "part of the Russian Federation."

Earlier, the Washington Post wrote that former US President Donald Trump intends to force Ukraine to give up part of its territory if he returns to power. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to this "peace plan" by saying that he did not believe in the rumors and was ready to talk about any of Trump's plans only when he came to Kyiv.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Trump supported the allocation of $61 billion in aid to Ukraine in order to conclude a "peace agreement" between Kyiv and Moscow in January 2025.
